*Advice* I recently accepted position at a 50K pay cut (covid). I shared my target salary /lateral move & at the negotiation point, they came up slightly by way of qtrly bonus structure but also outlined path for growth incl. expected salary increases at said points. Said it could be achieved in under a year. By day 4 of the new job they had accelerated to the final point in that plan without making good on title / salary. Spoke up immediately... “in discussion” 2 weeks in. Bait/switch WWUD??

I moved to a small town for my ex (think, if Buffalo NY was a tier 4, this is a tier 6 or 7) and the dating pool is... Limited. there are two decent sized cities about 100 miles away where I do well on dating apps when I'm in town (pre COVID). Am I weird for trying to date in those cities versus the cesspool I currently live In?
